I don't think I have ever had a year as weird as this year is. The year isn't really weird, it's more how I have felt this year about things. I need something to change because I don't like the way I feel. I keep trying to change how I feel and how I see things, but then it seems like things get worse! Nooooo!
This is the last week of the grading period. Have I finished my testing? Nope. Started, but barely. I have a lot to do, and just 4 "real" days to do it in. I don't know how much I will get done on Wednesday with is being Halloween. I will try, but you never know! I feel very overwhelmed and I don't like this feeling. I tried to change some plans, make it easier for me, but it ended up being more complicated. So, back to the original plan. I will get it done, it will all be OK.
We haven't done much for Halloween in class. We've read some pumpkin books, but no Halloween stories. We've done a couple pumpkin things, but that's it. I feel bad. I'm not a big fan of Halloween (in fact, my daughter doesn't go trick or treating unless we are at Legoland) and I don't focus on it very much. I have 3 days to get it all in, let the kids have some fun and then it's on to something else come Thursday. We are doing a scarecrow poem this week and scarecrow stories so we can do our scarecrow project on Friday. Check out what it can look like here. It's an all day project, but I really like it. Did I plan for it to last all day? Nope, but that's how my year is going! :) Oh well, what can you do?
Like everything else, I am overwhelmed. So, this will be all for today! For those of you in the path of the monster storm, I wish you well! For those of you in So Cal, I wish we had fall! I'm tired of this hot weather - 93* at the end of October is kinda crappy! Happy Sunday!
